I've been taking tagamet (cimetidine) a 1/2 hour or so before my adderall and it is a more noticeable effect that any weak base neutralizer (CO3- ion).
I have never stayed up all night on my meds, sometimes an extra to stay out late, so I'm not a big user of them. (ADD). But even in the afternoon I can get agitated, irritable, and if I take a xanax the Tagamet should theoretically help also.
Or just a little grapefruit juice on my way home from my school. 30 min drive, just to make sure.
TAKE TWO Tagamet HB or any other acid reducer (acid inhibition medications) about 10-30 min before any amphetamines and you should definitely notice a better result than the usually means.
I'm just suprised that nobody has mentioned this.
AS far as taking care of yourself......
The human body, if is given the proper nutrients and vitamins, (LAMENS TERMS: Has an amazing capability to heal. So take Tyrosine, ALONE, since when you eat food their are multiple amino acids competing for their spot on the ribosome and respiratory cycle. (so competition=less absorbtion of Tyrosine). To make that very simple, don't take it with food. -/+ 2 hrs recommended. That's why it says take between meals. Take vitamins, don't eat sugar coated, sugar bites for every meal, eat complex carbs, when you do eat, (Protein bars are good), and GET SOME SLEEP. I know it's hard, but make yourself do it. If you can't do that at least every other night then you've got bigger problems. Sleep equals body repair time.
If you (I'm sure a lot of people already have, but for people who don't quite understand the metabolism world, this is for you.) every can take a microbiology or Bio-Chem class you'll understand how important vitamins, nutrients are...
That's why science kicks ass, because it all ties together and you can use your knowledge of it get higher.
